In the controversial and thought-provoking tale TRUE FAITH, a disenfranchised young man is exposed to the destructive and manipulative sides of faith and belief when he becomes caught up in another man’s vendetta against God. After his wife died during childbirth, Terry Adair suddenly saw God as an obstruction to humanity. Setting out on a path of pastoral murders and church bombings, the faithless fanatic offers innocent bystander and witness Nigel Gibson a simple choice: join his crusade or die. Now forced to join Terry’s atheist mission of devastation, young Nigel’s eyes are quickly opened to the true nature of faith and how easily it can be used to destroy people.


This publication reprints the “True Faith” story serialized in issues of the anthology comic book series Crisis, originally published in the United Kingdom by Fleetway. All material in this publication was written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Warren Pleece.

In October 1990, Fleetway released a trade paperback of their own in the UK but that edition is out-of-print.
